Located on the hills of Castelnuovo Magra in an optimum panoramic position, this property offers a complete view over the whole area of the Val di Magra, with Castelnuovo to the west, Tuscany on the east, and the splendid hill of Ameglia and Montemarcello with its blue sea on the backdrop.
Castelnuovo Magra is a town perched on a hill at the foot of the Apuan Alps on the border of Tuscany thus allowing one to reach its beaches in just a few minutes.
The 478 sqm property is in a dominant position with sun exposure from sunrise to sunset.
The villa is surrounded by 6 hectares of land, of which 3 hectares are olive groves and fruit orchards. Its name “Le Chant Des Oliviers” perfectly represents the peace and tranquillity of the plants and the movement of the sea breeze.
The villa is on three levels and is composed as follows:
Entrance from the private dirt road is protected by and entrance bar to ensure privacy both in the parking lot where there are three covered parking spaces and in the large garden with lawn in front of the property. The garden leads directly to both the swimming pool area (16×5) with pergola, barbecue area, outdoor shower, and inside the villa through a solid wooden door which leads to a large hallway.
On the left is the dining area with dining room and large eat-in kitchen with a kitchen island and direct view to the pergola for fantastic outdoor breakfasts and lunches. To the right of the hallway is access to a room used as a study, a room for storage use where is the electrical panel and the living room. On this floor there is also a large bathroom with shower.
The entire first floor is separated from the hill thanks to a cavedium; an atrium design created specifically to avoid the infiltration of humidity.
A beautiful stone staircase leads to the first floor where there is also a second entrance from the back of the villa. There are five double bedrooms, two of which with private bathroom and one with direct access to the outside. This could be converted into an apartment because it already has facilities. There is also an additional bathroom serving the other two bedrooms.
On the attic floor is a large built-in wardrobe and two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The house is the result of the restoration and restructuring of a ruin in 2006. All the floors, except for the bathrooms and the kitchen, are in teak parquet and the fixtures, both the French windows and the windows and the velux skylights are all recently renovated.
To complete the property is the 16 x 5 swimming pool with automatic cover, the barbecue area and outdoor shower, three covered parking spaces, a garden with a lawn, 6 hectares of land and a closed circuit video camera system for security.
The villa has independent gas heating.
Castelnuovo Magra is an ancient village situated on Mount Bastione, a hill that slopes down towards the plain of the Magra river.
The position provides the centre of the town a 360 degree panoramic views over the valleys such as the splendid view of the Tyrrhenian coast to the Val di Vara. On particularly clear days you can see the islands of Gorgona and Capraia, up to the shape of Corsica.
The territory of Castelnuovo Magra has been historically and culturally linked to lower Lunigiana, an area which straddles the provinces of La Spezia and Massa & Carrara.
In the Roman imperial era it was part of the jurisdiction of Luni, an important commercial city of the empire. Traces of settlements in Roman times can be found as well as several burials in the Castelnovese land and some buildings of the Imperial Domus Agricola in the region of Colline del Sole.
Thanks to its crossroads positions, Castelnuovo allows you to taste both the typical Ligurian and the Tuscan flavors and very tasty combinations.
